Re: Babylon 5 Wars WC question

To give a quick summary: First figure is the total damage a shield can absorb. The second figure is like armour in that you subtract that value from each volley. The third figure is how much damage a shield can absorb from each volley. I remember that raking weapons have the effect of the shields ta...

Re: Babylon 5 Wars WC question

Sooo...yeah. I asked the question because I looked in the Confed zip file, the Kilrathi zip file and the Border Worlds zip file from the B5W Vault. I, of course, also checked the Civilian zip file before posting. No-one would be stupid enough to post before checking ALL the relevant zip files, right...

Babylon 5 Wars WC question

After the topic of B5W to VBAMSX was raised, I've been looking at my B5W, Babcom and Great Machine files and noticed that, unfortunately, while I have the Wing Commander ships, I don't have the rules for the Phase Shields. Can anyone summarise them for me? I'm guessing that the first number might be...

Re: Logging in for forums?

Yep. Got the latest (and my first) album by Architects, so, y'know, that was good. Pity Halestorm didn't have an album out but, y'know, having 'Animals' as a track is a good consolation...:D

Logging in for forums?

Came here to look at forums, couldn't get into Briefing Room or other sub-forums--said I have to log in. Logged in, still couldn't get into the Briefing Room, and it said there was no topics despite there being 17 topics listed...

Re: Future of the Forums

To start, I am still fairly certain that I will keep playing VBAM 1stEd, simply because of VBAMSX. It allows me to really visualise how a particular VBAM ship looks like when I know, for example, it has four missile launchers, four heavy anti-ship turrets and some light guns, whereas I wouldn't know...

Re: Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

Yeah, that's what I thought too, mainly based on the fact each Int mount covers 180 degrees and so all points are covered by three separate mounts

Re: What has happened?

Regarding Discord: I'm going to be honest--a few years ago I was feeling depressed, and while I'm better now, I'm not 'okay', and I'm fairly certain it was my daily internet usage that was causing it (certainly the first few months after purposefully making it harder for me to be online made me feel...

Re: Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

Was checking my files for versions of the SXCA that had Interceptors and, after finally finding them in (I think) the SXCAs for the Solar Union designs, noticed a minor problem. For INT Mk0 and Mk1 their DRat modifiers are (according to the relevant cells) =-2/6 and =-2/3 which, if I'm right, actual...

Re: What has happened?

I've always loved your endlessly creative Starmada setting documents - you are really reliable at getting a new one up for people to enjoy every few months, at that! Thanks for that. At times I feel a bit down and wonder whether its any point doing them, especially when I've got a creative block, s...

Re: Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

Sorry for the double post, but I've been meaning to ask you--did you have set-in-stone rules for converting B5W ships to VBAM:SX ships, or was it more a set of guidelines? I've been reading your old campaign diaries and for a while I was tempted to run a crossover campaign with a B5, ST or other B5W...

Re: Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

I did something similar in the first of my 2020 campaigns, but only for a year--the active powers were in the middle of colony-creation and fleet expansion for those colony's defences and I didn't want to get distracted by system raids or political shifts. In retrospect with the second campaign, giv...

Re: What has happened?

Okay, what is Discord? I only joined Twitter in the last six months so you can't say I'm up to date with things...:)
